    The four-game series that begins Monday between the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros has many intriguing storylines, including Tuesday’s matchup of the top two American League Cy Young Award contenders in Justin Verlander and Dylan Cease. It could be a chance for the Sox to prove they’re bona fide contenders. Or it could be another in a series of missed opportunities for an inconsistent team. Here are four things to watch in the rematch of last year’s AL Division Series. 1. Playoff implications The defending AL champion Astros are on a season-long roll and bring the league’s best record (75-41) into the showdown on the South Side. They’ve continued to dominate in 2022 in spite of the prolonged absence of Lance McCullers Jr., who returned Saturday to throw six shutout innings in his first start since suffering a strained right flexor tendon in Game 4 of the 2021 ALDS. The Astros have few flaws. Their starters entered Sunday with the lowest ERA (3.15) in the AL, and the bullpen’s 2.76 ERA was the best in baseball. The offense ranked...

    PEOPLE are being urged to stay vigilant to monkeypox signs.  But it’s easy to mistake for something else, from a cold to herpes. 3High temperature and achey joints are among the first signs of monkeypoxCredit: Getty 3Standard monkeypox symptoms Monkeypox is an illness that lasts up to three weeks, causing various stages of symptoms.  If you come into contact with someone with the virus, you won’t necessarily realise that you have been infected for several days after.

    Getty Undrafted rookie wide receiver Shemar Bridges goes up to make a contested catch. The Baltimore Ravens officially kicked off their 2022 campaign with a commanding 23-10 win over the Tennessee Titans to extend their impressive exhibition game winning streak to 21 in a row. There were plenty of players that entered the night with a lot to prove and many of them didn’t disappoint and some even far exceeded expectations. There were far more players that improved their stock than there were those that hurt their chances of final roster consideration and some just got outshined by others at their respective positions. Stock Up Isaiah Likely The fourth-round rookie translated the impressive flashes he’s been displaying in practice into a strong showing in his first preseason game by making several impressive plays in the first half. He made a pair of impressive contested catches including one on an over route towards the left side of the field that resembled a patented Mark Andrews play and corralled another before it could hit the turf that was initially ruled...

    The PLF Playoffs are among us, and we think Alexei Pergande is a fighter to watch. The PFL Playoffs are here and we’re about to start a three-week journey to see who ends up in the PFL Championships in November. To get there, the top four talent in all six competing weight classes will fight one more time, with the winners going on to the million-dollar finale. A name that will be on the card but not competing in any of the tournaments is Challenger Series winner and undefeated lightweight, Alexei Pergande. Pergande is a new name and is only 1-0 in MMA, winning his first pro bout against Joe Hamm on the PFL Challenge Series 7. Pergande defeated Hamm via submission with an arm-triangle choke. While it was his first pro bout and his first pro win, Pergande is no stranger to combat. Between 2019 and 2021, Pergande went 4-0 as an amateur, winning all four of his fights by stoppage, with three submissions and one TKO to his credit. So, while he’s on a card with former UFC...

    During a recent visit to Connecticut, a bystander heckled first lady Jill Biden, ripping her husband as the worst president ever. Biden was on a break from a tour of summer learning programs in the area alongside Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and Gov. Ned Lamont (D-CT) when the heckler confronted her. RON DESANTIS TROLLS BIDEN IN FIERY SPEECH AHEAD OF POTENTIAL 2024 FACEOFF “Your husband is the worst president we ever had.

    Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of JFK and America's new ambassador to Australia, has jokingly hit out at a reporter for speaking over his female colleague. Ms Kennedy, daughter of assassinated US president John F. Kennedy, landed in Sydney on Friday morning and met with journalists to discuss what her role as the US's ambassador to Australia will look like. As she was hit with a flurry of questions, Ms Kennedy called out a moment where a male journalist appeared to speak over his female colleague, Seven News' Isabelle Mullen. In a typical press gallery media conference, the two journalists were frantically trying to speak over each other, with the male reporter trying to push on with his question until Ms Mullen was quiet. Scroll down for the video.  The new US ambassador to Australia Caroline Kennedy (above) arrived in Sydney on Friday morning  'Did you just talk over the woman?,' Ms Kennedy interrupted, to protests from the male journalist. 'Okay well she had started.' Ms Kennedy then turned to face Ms Mullen, who asked for Ms Kennedy's thoughts on the...

    Getty Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry hushes the crowd during Round One of the 2022 American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. How does Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry kick back after winning a fourth NBA championship and capturing his first-ever Finals MVP trophy in the process? By getting back out and competing at the highest possible level, naturally. Only instead of doing it on the hardwood, the Dubs star took his competitive drive to the links for the 2022 American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe South over the weekend. And, apparently, he brought his ability to hit shots from long range with him. Curry was scuffling on Friday, heading into the 13th hole — a 434-year par four playing to an elevated green — having bogeyed seven of the first 12 holes (including a double bogey on three). However, his round was redeemed in an instant when, somehow, he hit a fairway shot from 97 yards out that landed on the green and then rolled back into the hole for a two-shot eagle (see...
    BIG things were expected of Ramon Calliste.   The former Man United starlet was labelled the next Ryan Giggs and trained with the first team alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. 21 Ramon Calliste is owner of Global Watches, a company that rakes in around £5m a year 21 Delivering a bespoke service, Global Watches sells high-end time pieces However, when it didn't work out at the Red Devils the former Welsh wizard moved onto Liverpool and became their top scorer in reserve football. Frustrated with his lack of first team opportunities, and taking on advice from then-Wales manager John Toshack, he moved to Scunthorpe in 2006. But in a cruel twist of fate during his first preseason game Ramon dislocated his ankle, cracking a bone and severely damaging his ligaments. After bouncing around at a few clubs, including Farnborough and Cambridge City, Ramon was conscious that the horror injury meant he'd never return to the same level again. TIME FOR CHANGE He turned his attentions to watches, and in 2013 launched Global Watches - a company that sells high-end...
    ELVIS (12A), 159mins  ★★★★☆ IS there anything left to know about the most impersonated man in the world? Director Baz Luhrmann certainly thinks so, with his high tempo and ferociously flamboyant look at Elvis Presley’s relationship with his dodgy manager, Colonel Tom Parker. 3This high-speed spin through the first 20 years of Elvis’s life that makes you feel like you’ve just binged on a knickerbocker gloryCredit: Alamy Similar to Luhrmann’s direction of The Great Gatsby and Romeo And Juliet, the first half hour barely lets you blink. Camp and crazy love letter It’s a high-speed spin through the first 20 years of Elvis’s life that makes you feel like you’ve just binged on a knickerbocker glory, with a huge dollop of glitz, glamour and decadence sprinkled on top. There’s a young Elvis, growing up dirt poor, peeping through the curtains at a black evangelical church in the deep south. He is spellbound by the music, as though it takes over his soul, and is heavily influenced by the beats, which he goes on to use in his own music....
    Imagine a world where wars are fought by AI-powered tanks, allowing soldiers to stay at a safe distance from the battlefield and yet, still demolish their enemies. Although this sounds like something out of a sci-fi film, the scenario is exactly what Milrem Robotics and Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace have shown in a first live fire of the PROTECTOR Remote Turret from the Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV). The unmanned tank, dubbed Type-X,’ features navigation and obstacle detection systems powered by AI and a range of weapons including 50 mm cannons, anti-tank missiles, and even a tethered drone. Milrem plans to sell its killer robotic tank to Nordic and Western European countries, but the US has also showed interest in the technology. And at least ten countries have already placed orders for the Type-X platform, including seven NATO members.

    Thousands of Floridians participated in last Saturday’s “first in the nation” flotilla devoted to “freedom first” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), and Republican officials say they are looking “forward to his victory” in November. Hundreds of boats passed along the St. John’s River in Jacksonville, Florida, last weekend, decorated with patriotic flags. There were flags that read “DeSantis 2022,” “Daddy DeSantis,” “Don’t Tread on Florida,” and “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted for Trump.” One boat featured a woman waving with a cardboard cutout of the popular governor as she and others waved to the onlookers aboard the USS Orleck, which was docked along the river in downtown Jacksonville. At times, the speakers blared the song “Sweet Florida,” which praises DeSantis for championing freedom in the Sunshine State. According to Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black, 1,300 boats participated in the event. “With over 1,300 boats participating, the first-in-the-nation DeSantis Flotilla was a huge success!” he told Breitbart News. “I’d like to thank those who came out to show their support for Gov. DeSantis and the volunteers who were crucial in making this...
    Greta Van Susteren’s debut on Newsmax got off to a rough start when tech problems foiled her attempts to hold an interview with Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Tuesday evening was Van Susteren’s first night hosting her new show, The Record, and after her lead-in, she tried to speak to Grassley about inflation and the impact of rising costs around the country. Van Susteren asked Grassley if there is a bipartisan solution for the country’s economic woes, but the conversation was immediately beset by audio problems because the senator told her “you’ll have to come through clearer than you have so far. I couldn’t make out what you’re saying.” “I’m asking you, sir, that people are suffering so much from gas prices, food prices,” Van Susteren said in a louder voice. “What can Republicans and Democrats — what are they willing to do together, and what can they do together to help the economy?” “I’m sorry,” Grassley responded. “It’s all muffled. It sounds like you’re talking to me, I just can’t hear anything you’ve got to ask me. I’m sorry.” Van...
    DENVER (CBS4) – One of the most consistent pieces of the Colorado Avalanche franchise won’t be taking part in the Stanley Cup Final. Legendary National Anthem singer Jake Schroeder has performed in front of the Avalanche crowd more than 1,000 times, but as an historic season comes to a close, Schroeder is in France. (credit: CBS) “The people that go to those games have treated me so well and are so kind. It’s just, I think that’s what I’m going to miss the most is people are so nice,” Schroeder said last week before leaving for his new job leading a non-profit. Singing the National Anthem started out as a hobby in 1985 when Schroeder first sang before a nuggets game. He’s performed before at the beginning of many events for nearly 40 years. It was in the late 90s when he became a constant before Avs games. A song that has created a remarkable bond between him and his late father. “The first year I think I missed a few more than normal and then after that I was...

    Video footage shows former research chimpanzees going outdoors and touching grass for the first time. The chimpanzees had been used by labs for decades and are now enjoying their new home at chimp haven. Harriet and Betty came to the sanctuary with eight other chimps on a long 14-hour journey by truck. The others can be seen climbing trees 30-feet tall and interacting with the other chimpanzees in the sanctuary. Source: the dodo/Youtube Ali Crumpacker, the executive director of Project Chimps, said, “When the federal government ended the use of chimpanzees in invasive medical research, nearly 700 chimps around the US needed a forever home. Those in government-funded studies could go to Chimp Haven, a sanctuary designated for government research chimps. Chimpanzees aren’t used in animal testing anymore, but other primates are. The National Institutes of Health ended funding for invasive chimpanzee research in 2015. You can donate to Project Chimps here to help them build their new sanctuary habitats. Each chimp costs $22,000 annually, and they can live for 65 years. You can also check out their amazing work...
    President Joe Biden on Friday broke away from a speech on what he calls his top priority – confronting inflation – to highlight the House January 6 hearings and forces that he described as threatening democracy with a 'dagger.' Biden made the comments at the top of a speech on inflation and supply chain issues, staged in the Port of Los Angeles to illustrate supply chain actions. But he immediately brought up the issue that is captivating Washington – following press reports about staff grumbling about travel speeches that don't always get picked up due to low news content.  He called the events of Jan. 6 'one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history,' and highlighted the 'brutal attack on law enforcement,' following jarring testimony from Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards, who sustained a traumatic brain injury fending off protesters Jan. 6th. She has still not returned to work.  'It's important to American people understand what truly happened. And to understand that the same forces that led January 6 to remain at work today,' President Joe Biden said on...
    (CNN)The House select committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, will hold its first public hearing Thursday night and will reveal it findings surrounding the insurrection.The nine-person panel has spent months investigating the insurrection, interviewing members of the Trump administration and President Donald Trump's inner circle and reviewing messages sent between them. They will unveil an in-depth assessment of events leading up to the day Congress was to affirm Joe Biden's victory, the administration's response to the violence at the Capitol and what unfolded in the aftermath among Trump and his allies.CNN has previously reported the hearing will be a broad overview of the 10-month investigation and will map out subsequent hearings that are expected to cover certain topics or themes. The committee has promised it will "present previously unseen material documenting January 6th, receive witness testimony, preview additional hearings" surrounding the insurrection. The committee has announced the hearing will include two witnesses, documentarian Nick Quested, who has filmed members of the Proud Boys, and Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards, who was injured after an...
    (CNN)The House select committee investigating January 6 will use its first prime-time public hearing on Thursday to make the case that former President Donald Trump was at the center of a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election and prevent the transition of power, according to the committee. The panel will reveal new evidence that aides say will help "connect the dots" between Trump's election lies, his attempts to overturn Joe Biden's 2020 election win and the violence that unfolded on January 6, 2021, when rioters stormed the US Capitol in an effort to stop the counting of electoral votes. Aides outlined the first public hearing, which will take place in prime time, as the committee's opening salvo -- previewing what's to come in the month's worth of planned hearings.Here's what to expect:New video and attempt to draw a direct line between Trump and violenceRead MoreThursday, the committee plans to show previously unseen video of testimony collected during closed depositions that includes interviews with Trump White House aides, campaign officials and members of Trumps' family.Committee aides said they also plan to...
    Nick Quested is a filmmaker who had been documenting the Proud Boys on and before January 6 A British documentary filmmaker who shot footage of the Proud Boys on and around January 6 last year will be a witness in Thursday night's hearing by the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot, it was reported on Monday night. Nick Quested was embedded with the far-right group and would have video evidence of its members' confrontations with law enforcement outside of the Capitol as well as other key findings about its activity. The Democrat-led panel is also expected to hear from Capitol police officer Caroline Edwards on the other side of the conflict. Edwards was injured in a dust-up linked to Proud Boys members while defending the complex that day. Both of their appearances were reported by the New York Times. Their expected testimonies are a sign that lawmakers' first in a series of six hearings will focus heavily on the Proud Boys, who have been accused of playing a central role in instigating the violence that day and coordinating Trump...

    (CNN)There may be another 100 days to go until the start of the NFL season, but fans will still be able to get their football fix on Wednesday when four of the league's top quarterbacks swap the gridiron for the golf course.Featuring four of the past five years' MVPs, the sixth edition of "the Match" will see veteran signal-callers Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers face off against young stars Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen in Las Vegas.

    Elise Reed bounced back from her first loss and aims to keep the wins coming at UFC Vegas 55. UFC Vegas 55 features the return of a former champion Holly Holm taking on a top contender on Ketlen Vieira in the women’s bantamweight division. Looking across the card, there are several prospects that fans should keep an eye on. One of them is Elise Reed and she’s the fighter to watch. Reed, fighting out of Princeton, New Jersey, is making her third appearance in the Octagon. When she first joined the UFC, she took a short notice bout against Sijara Eubanks in July of 2021. That fight didn’t go in her favor as Eubanks finished Reed within the first round. She’s since recovered, defeating Cory McKenna via split decision in March. Reed came into the UFC as a top prospect from the Northeast. Even before joining the UFC, she had already competed for major organizations, with her debut occurring in October of 2019 at Bellator 231. From Bellator, she then went to Cage Fury Fighting Championships, where she picked up...
    Christopher Morel, the 22-year-old called up to the Majors on Tuesday, predicted he would homer in his first at-bat and delivered. Christopher Morel called his shot. He didn’t point his bat toward the bleachers as Babe Ruth did in this same stadium 90 years ago. But Morel, who 24 hours earlier didn’t even know he was getting called up to the Majors, sensed something special was going to happen. Morel arrived in the Cubs clubhouse at Wrigley Field on Tuesday after getting called up when Jason Heyward was placed on the IL. He had no expectation he would make his MLB debut that same day as the Cubs took on the Pittsburgh Pirates. He wasn’t in the starting lineup and could only watch and learn from the dugout as the Cubs built a 6-0 lead over the Pirates. He stayed ready, though. In the seventh inning, he told Cubs veteran catcher Willson Contreras that he would hit a home run in his first at-bat, just as Contreras did on June 19, 2016. An inning later, Cubs manager David Ross...

    Scientists unveiled the first picture of the black hole that forms the heart of the Milky Way galaxy Thursday during a press conference hosted by the National Science Foundation with the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration in Washington, D.C. The image is the product of a team effort by the Event Horizon Telescope, or EHT Collaboration, and it was brought to life using a worldwide network of radio telescopes, according to a release from the NSF.

    The Staten Island FerryHawks made history over the weekend as Kelsie Whitmore started the game in left field, becoming the first woman to start a game in the MLB affiliated Atlantic League. The 23-year-old also batted ninth in the lineup Sunday against the Gastonia Honey Hunters, going 0-2, while being struck by a pitch in the left shoulder. “I’m grateful for all the opportunities I’ve been given.

    Sauce Gardner could not find the stage after being drafted by the New York Jets. From seeing ghosts to getting lost in the sauce, former Cincinnati Bearcats star cornerback Sauce Gardner already had his first New York Jets moment of epic proportions. With a 40 percent chance of beginning his NFL life in New Jersey, Gardner wanted to exit stage left on Thursday night. In the first opportunity to go to one of the two struggling New York franchises, Gang Green signed themselves up for some sauce. Gardner may become the next Revis Island, but he was so looking for Ellis Island to cross the Atlantic in the other direction, just to buck the trend. As long as he does not throw an interception across his body on his first NFL snap, he will be okay. Sauce Gardner taken by the Jets and immediately walks the wrong way.

    Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson was caught on camera flipping off Cleveland Guardians fans during a frustrating game. The first game of Wednesday’s doubleheader between the White Sox and Guardians was a nightmare for Tim Anderson. Chicago’s shortstop committed three errors in the first two innings as Cleveland jumped out to a 10-0 lead. In the midst of the frustration, Anderson had a message for Guardians fans, and it wasn’t very nice.White Sox broadcast catches Tim Anderson giving Guardians fans the fingerpic.twitter.com/Sw0XlmEQMz — Uncomfortable Sports Moments (@awkwardsport) April 20, 2022 Anderson flipped fans in Cleveland the bird, though it’s not clear if he was responding to anything in particular or just the general direction of the game. The shortstop opened the bottom of the first inning with a throwing error that put Myles Straw on base. Straw went on to score the first run of the game. Things only got worse in the second inning. Anderson committed another throwing error to start the inning. Gabriel Arias, who took first because of the error, went on to start an...
    Netflix is on track for the biggest stock drop in nearly a decade after shedding 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter. The struggling streaming giant saw shares plummet 27 per cent in pre-market trading despite the firm expecting a strong start to the year. If the figure stays the same it will wipe $40billion from its market capitalization of $157 billion. The stock also plunged by more than 20 per cent in January and fell by as much as 25 per cent on July 25, 2012. Elon Musk was among those to slam Netflix yesterday, saying it had become 'unwatchable' after being infected by the 'woke mind virus'. Upon news that it had shed 200,000 subscribers, its shares plunged by 25%.

    The Chicago Cubs have some of the most dedicated fans in the world of MLB, and a fan just showed how much the Cubs mean to him during a game. A fan caught the first home-run ball of 2022 from the Chicago Cubs, and he was shown celebrating with everyone around him. Cubs fans are dedicated, and this guy showed a new perspective on just how much the Cubs mean to the fandom. This appears to be the best day ever for this man, and certainly a story to tell to everyone who will listen. The Cubs fans around the country were thrilled to see the start of a new season, and some traveled quite far to cheer on the team for Opening Day. “I’m excited about a fresh new team and I’m excited to be here. Well, a little strange because we started in New Orleans this morning where it’s like 80 degrees out, and now it’s this.” -Chicago Cubs fan Kaitlyn Chamberlain, via Chicago Tribune The season opener was even more special to fans than usual because it...
    The first fully commercial crew of astronauts will fly to the International Space Station later today, with three businessmen each paying $55 million (£41 million) for a seat. Canadian investor and philanthropist Mark Pathy, US entrepreneur Larry Connor, and ex-Israeli Air Force pilot Eytan Stibbe will blast off from Florida's Kennedy Space Center at 11:17 ET (16:17 BST).  The crew, which also includes former NASA astronaut Michael López-Alegría acting as commander for Axiom Space, are launching on a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule in what is the latest milestone in the commercialisation of space. They are set to arrive at the orbital laboratory at about 7:30am ET (12:30 BST) the next morning for an eight-day stay, where they will spend a tenth of their time on science, medical and technical investigations and experiments.  The three rich businessmen may appear to have a lot in common with many of the wealthy passengers taking suborbital rides aboard the Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic services offered by billionaires Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, respectively. But López-Alegría has stressed that his three crewmates are not 'space tourists' because...
    It was a historic vote that will live forever in the history books: The Senate confirmed the first Black woman to become a U.S. Supreme Court justice. And it was a vote that too will go down in history. Not only for being by such an incredibly slim margin – 53 to 47 – but for how Senate Republicans treated the entire process. Take Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), who purposely made the entire country – including the President and his nominee, watching from the Roosevelt Room in the White House – wait more than 16 minutes until he showed up to cast the final vote, a “no.” Sen. Paul wasn’t even dressed in a suit, he wore “casual attire” and had to vote from off the Senate floor, just one more on a pile of indignities he inflicted on what many experts have said is one of the most qualified people ever to be nominated to the Supreme Court. Rand Paul wasn’t the only Republican to treat Judge Jackson with disdain. Senators Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Lindsey...

It wasn't a fairytale hole in one, but Woods left himself the simplest of tap-ins for his first birdie of the competition. Patrons at Augusta roared in approval as Woods' tee shot arrowed...

    After Will Smith smacked Chris Rock over a joke at the Oscars, legendary actor Denzel Washington was seen taking Smith aside and talking to him near the stage. On Saturday, Washington opened up about the incident for the first time. Washington spoke to Smith, along with fellow legend Tyler Perry, during a commercial break after the massively viral moment, and photos and video (with no audio) of that conversation were shared on social media. But Washington hadn’t talked about it until speaking with megachurch pastor T.D. Jakes at his annual International Leadership Conference, which was held in Charlotte, North Carolina this week. Various photos and descriptions have been posted online from the Summit, which was live-streamed by The Wrap. Many shared clips on social media, including one from Charmaine Bassett, host of Lady Charmaine Live on Clear Channel in the Facebook video above.

    ESPN’s Paul Finebaum can sometimes get lost in the catalog of sports personalities, but his show can be quite interesting when he opens the phone lines to passionate football and SEC fans alike. This brings an assortment of opportunities as long-time listeners look to make their first call into their favorite show.

    Ariana DeBose stars as Anita in Steven Spielberg's new "West Side Story" movie.20th Century Studios LOS ANGELES – Hollywood's biggest night is Sunday, and there could be plenty of history made. With the diversity in this year's crop of Oscar nominees, audiences are likely to see a number of milestones set. The academy often is criticized for a lack of diversity in its nominations. And while there are some clear front-runners for the 94th annual Academy Awards, there's still room for underdogs to snag an upset in several categories. There's also plenty of controversy, too. This year, the show has come under fire for its decision to present some awards before the live broadcast begins and then edit those winners into the show later. The eight awards that are set to be announced prior to the broadcast are for live action short, animated short, short documentary, editing, score, hair and makeup, sound and production design. The trio of Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes will assume hosting duties during Sunday's ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. For...
